There is several commercial software used to make contour plot, such as Surfer 8. While those softwares provide complete and advanced features, it is not easy to operate and not providing a basic understanding on the internal work of creating contour plot. For teaching purposes, those softwares are not the best choice because of that reasons, other than the high pricing. In this research, we develop a easy to use software to make contour plot, optimized for teaching purposes so that students can see the step by step of creating contour plot using common method. The result is software that can match the Surfer 8 at 78.29% accuracy, yet easy for student to operate.
